The Plague of American Authoritarianism

Authoritarianism in the American collective psyche and in what might be called traditional narratives of historical memory is always viewed as existing elsewhere. Viewed as an alien and demagogic political system, it is primarily understood as a mode of governance associated with the dictatorships in Latin America in the 1970s and, of course, in its most vile extremes, with Hitler’s poisonous Nazi rule and Mussolini’s fascist state in the 1930s and 1940s. These were and are societies that idealized war, soldiers, nationalism, militarism, political certainty, fallen warriors, racial cleansing, and a dogmatic allegiance to the homeland.

Operation Choke Point: The Government’s Covert War on Small Business

But a growing number of business owners believe they know why they’re being cut off from the financial system. It’s Operation Choke Point, ostensibly an attempt to crack down on fraudulent businesses, but in reality a dragnet that has ensnared innocent entrepreneurs unfairly classified as “high-risk” players.

In Victory for Corporations, Court Rejects Rule on Labeling Goods Containing “Conflict Minerals”

Since 1998, more than 5 million people have died in the Democratic Republic of Congo in what has been described as the deadliest documented conflict in African history. Much of the fighting has been over precious minerals including tantalum, tin, tungsten and gold. Tantalum has become a precious commodity in the digital age — it’s found in cellphones, DVD players, laptops and hard drives. Human rights groups have long pushed for mandatory labeling of so-called "conflict minerals" in order to allow consumers and investors to avoid fueling the bloody conflict through the purchase of their products. The mandatory disclosure policy became law as part of the 2010 Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act. But this week a federal appeals court ruled the Securities and Exchange Commission cannot force companies to disclose whether minerals come from the Democratic Republic of Congo because the mandatory labeling would violate the companies’ freedom of speech.

The dystopian danger of police body cameras

Police-worn body cameras are the newest darling of criminal justice reform. They are touted as a way to collect evidence for criminal investigations, oversee and expose abusive police practices, and exonerate officers from fabricated charges. While the nation continues to debate how effective these body cameras are for police departments, less attention has been paid to the appearance of body cameras in other public sectors, most recently in our schools.

Here We Go: Information in Hillary Clinton’s Emails ‘Born Classified’

Dozens of emails that passed through Hillary Clinton’s server during her time as secretary of state reportedly contained information automatically considered classified by the U.S. government and State Department’s own regulations.

According to Reuters, at least 30 e-mail threads dating from as far back as 2009 contained what the State Department describes as “foreign government information.” That number represents scores of individual emails that have already been made public, including 17 sent by Clinton herself. At least one of those emails was sent to longtime supporter Sidney Blumenthal, who did not hold a government position at the time.

"Saving America?" No, Donald Trump Is a Clinton Distraction Tactic

It’s been pretty shocking that people are actually walking around talking about how Donald Trump is going to “Save America”. If you ever needed a sign that the country is lost, that’s gotta be it.

But worse is the fact that Trump is so obviously a Clinton plant and people just ignore the facts because right now he’s “telling it like it is”. More like he’s tell you what you want to hear at a time when people are desperate to hear any truth coming out of the American political-industrial complex.

First of all, if anyone ever had half a chance in Hell of changing anything in this country, rest assured The Powers That Shouldn’t Be would not let that person anywhere near the Oval Office. The last time this country had a president that tried to change things, that person got his brains blown out in front of the entire country.

The War Criminal Who Won The Nobel Peace Prize: Barack Obama

As the United States renews a bombing campaign against ISIS forces in Syria, it seems like America’s penchant for waging war knows no bounds. During the first seven years of Barack Obama’s presidency, the U.S. bombed seven countries while supporting other destabilizing military actions throughout the Middle East.

Jeremy Corbyn will apologize for illegal Iraq War if elected leader

Labour Party leadership frontrunner Jeremy Corbyn says he will issue an apology for the 2003 invasion of Iraq if he is elected.

Corbyn, who posed staunch opposition to the war when Tony Blair led the party, told the Guardian the invasion had been undertaken “on the basis of deception” and planned to issue a formal apology on behalf of the party if he is elected.

Hillary Clinton’s Keystone Crisis

Hillary Clinton’s pipeline problem started in earnest this July 28, when Bruce Blodgett, a retired software engineer, asked Clinton about her position on Keystone XL during a town hall forum in Nashua, New Hampshire. The video of Clinton’s response is painful to watch, in part because it’s so emblematic of the cautiousness and doublespeak that even her supporters wish their candidate would move away from.

Clinton takes a limp swipe at “Shortermism” - plays it safe with her corporate masters

FLASHBACK - Tech company which maintained Hillary's secret server was sued for 'illegally accessing' database and 'stealing White House military advisers' phone numbers'

The Internet company used by Hillary Clinton to maintain her private server was sued for stealing dozens of phone lines including some which were used by the White House.

Platte River Networks is said to have illegally accessed the master database for all US phone numbers.

It also seized 390 lines in a move that created chaos across the US government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This reeks of being someone's espionage operation, and the fact that Hillary went all the way to Colorado to hire this company, which was not vetted by the DSS per her own husband's executive order, strongly suggests Hillary was engaged in selling secrets for "donations" to the Clinton Foundation.

Now Hillary Is Blaming The Government’s ‘Ridiculous Classification Rules’

Last week Hillary Clinton was blaming Republicans for her email scandal woes; this week she’s blaming the federal government and its “ridiculous classification rules.”

The Democratic presidential candidate sent a tweet early Friday morning which linked to a Politico article and called the government’s classification protocols “the real problem.”

Clinton Email Backups Must Exist

The newly-employed damage control spokesman denied that the Clinton server wasn’t in the bathroom at Platte River. He says that was where the server that held company billing, receipts, etc. was kept. And I believe him because he says the Clinton server was seized by the FBI out of a typical data center in New Jersey, where Platte River had set it up.

So there you have it; having the server in question sit in a conventional data center is a horrible development for team Clinton.
Why? Because EVERY datacenter on the planet in absolutely responsible to back up all the data with which they are entrusted to the gold standard of data protection – backup tapes.

Pentagon wants to ramp up drone flights by 2019

Ever since the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan started to wind down, the American public has gained a revulsion towards sending troops to combat zones overseas. Granted, public support for a ground invasion against Isis or Syria has teetered back and forth in recent years, but gone are the days when a US president could easily drum up support for a “Gulf War” style invasion. This means that when the Pentagon wants to go to war, all they can do is throw more drones at the problem.

Can the States seize control of federal lands?

The term “Sagebrush Rebellion” is again showing up in newspapers across the American west as states seek more control over federal lands within their own boundaries. As with the original Sagebrush Rebellion of the 1970s and 1980s, several western states, where the federal government owns well over one-third of land within the states, have begun to look to more local control of lands as an answer to federal indifference, mismanagement, and outright hostility. In at least one case — Utah — the state has initiated a lawsuit in an effort to wrest more control of lands out of federal hands.

Northern Israel has been hit by four rockets fired from Syrian territory, amid contradictory claims from Israeli defence spokesmen over who was responsible.

UNITED STATES JUST PASSED UP OLD SOVIET UNION GULAGS FOR LARGEST PRISON SYSTEM

For decades, the Soviet Gulags under Joseph Stalin had been considered some of the worst prisons in all of history. But now things have changed. The United States has far exceeded the horrific tolls of the gulags. In the Soviet example, there were more than 18 million victims during the gulags’ use over four decades. Around a million people died in the gulags over the years.

GERMAN GOVERNMENT CHARGES CIA SPY WITH TREASON

A German intelligence officer, who is accused of spying for the United States Central Intelligence Agency, has been officially charged with treason by authorities in Berlin. The 32-year-old man, identified in court papers only as “Markus R.”, worked as a clerk at the Bundesnachrichtendienst, or BND, Germany’s external intelligence agency. He was arrested in July 2014 on suspicion of having spied for the CIA for approximately two years. German prosecutors say they have evidence that shows Markus R. supplied the American spy agency with around 200 classified German government documents in exchange for around €25,000 —approximately $30,000.

In Israel, Huckabee goes against longstanding U.S. policy

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee on Wednesday rejected the notion that the West Bank is occupied territory insisting instead that the largely Palestinian-populated territory is part of Israel.

Huckabee's statements -- during a trip to Israel -- fly in the face of international law and longstanding U.S. policy, which consider the West Bank as occupied territory and the construction of additional settlements in that territory illegal.

"I don't see it as occupied," Huckabee said Wednesday during a press conference in Jerusalem. "That makes it appear as if someone is illegally taking land. I don't see it that way."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"I know who I work for!" -- Fuckabee

Federal Judge: Clinton ‘Violated Government Policy’

A federal judge declared today that Hillary Clinton’s exclusive use of a private server and e-mail account for government work “violated government policy,” contrary to the Democratic frontrunner’s claims.

U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan presided over a hearing Thursday afternoon meant to determine whether the State Department was sufficiently forthcoming about Clinton’s e-mails and e-mail policies. “We wouldn’t be here today if this employee had followed government policy,” Sullivan, a Bill Clinton appointee, said at the hearing. “There was a violation of government policy.”

TSA AT THE MOVIES: THEATER CHAIN LOOKS TO BRING SECURITY THEATER TO THE MOVIE THEATER

Following two recent deadly incidents at movie theatres in the US, the Regal Entertainment Group – the nation’s largest movie theater chain – this week added a bag and purse check policy as a security measure in some of the 569 theaters it operates. “Security issues have become a daily part of our lives in America. Regal Entertainment Group wants our customers and staff to feel comfortable and safe when visiting or working in our theatres,” the chain said in a statement.

WHAT DROUGHT? NESTLE PAYS ONLY $524 TO EXTRACT 27,000,000 GALLONS OF CALIFORNIA DRINKING WATER

Nestle has found itself more and more frequently in the glare of the California drought-shame spotlight than it would arguably care to be — though not frequently enough, apparently, for the megacorporation to have spontaneously sprouted a conscience. Drought-shaming worked sufficiently enough for Starbucks to stop bottling water in the now-arid state entirely, uprooting its operations all the way to Pennsylvania. But Nestle simply shrugged off public outrage and then upped the ante by increasing its draw from natural springs — most notoriously in the San Bernardino National Forest — with an absurdlyexpired permit.

The test for justice – indict Hillary

Once upon a time a unique Republic was a country where the rule of law maintained at least the appearance of constitutional government. The role of the US Attorney General was based upon enforcing accountability for government officials who broke statues. America like all other countries always had their share of crooks and thieves in public office. In spite of this, reasonably clear standards for prosecution were honored and appropriate indictments would follow. Politicizing the Department of Justice was not the measure of filing criminal charges.

Giving War a Chance – Peace is almost always an alternative—but you won’t hear that from US politicians or news media

On August 5, US President Barack Obama compared the rhetoric employed by opponents of the P5+1/Iran nuclear negotiations to that used by the Bush administration during the run-up to America’s catastrophic war in Iraq, noting (Washington Post, 8/5/15) that “many of the same people who argued for the war in Iraq are now making the case against the Iran nuclear deal.”

The Monster Plot - Are Russian Spetsnaz in full motion in America?

According to ex-KGB officer Anatoly Golitsyn who defected to the West all-the-way back in 1961, the Soviet Union had plans to fake their own collapse (which later happened back in 1991) as part of their strategy to ultimately defeat the West by uniting with them under a world government led by none other than the Russians and Chinese.

As we watch events unfold today as America turns into a socialist nightmare and Russia, China and BRICS prepare to seize control of the global finance machine away from the US, we have to ask if we are now watching the concluding acts of a plan set into motion many years ago?

Social Engineering 2.0 – Google Algorithm Poses “Serious Threat to Democratic System”

Things are now so advanced, that Politico is blowing the whistle on how much influence technology has gained in its ability to steer a “democratic” society that believes in the illusion of choice, elections and voting.

A simple algorithm could allow Google to swing popular opinion on election candidates or issues by as much as 20%, and beyond according to this report. That’s more than enough to alter the outcome of democracy… and make our voices something of a moot point.

This Country Said No To Mammography Screenings. And That’s Amazing.

Last year the Swiss Medical Board conducted a review of mammography screening and their findings exposed something rather unexpected. They assessed that these screenings cause more harm than good. In fact, via their studies, they found that the screenings really only saved 1 in 1000 women who died. On the contrary, the failure of the process, or unsafe side effects, were the actual greater concern.

George Soros’s Fakery

George Soros pretends to be a progressive, but he invests in and finances nazis. That’s not “Nazis” as in National Socialist Party of Germany, which was outlawed after WW II, and whose racist obsession was against Jews. Instead, it’s “nazis” as in any racist fascist ideology (any ideology of racist fascism, instead of a political Party), in any country, against any ethnic group. But George Soros happens to support only nazis (racist fascists) whose passionate hatred is specifically against Russians. His entire biography in public life has actually been that.

Ireland voted against "anchor babies" in 2004 with 79 percent for ban

Trump has stated that birthright citizenship, or "jus soli," which is currently protected under the fourteenth amendment to the US constitution, could be easily axed by calling for a re-interpretation of the fourteenth amendment. You can watch him and Bill O'Reilly go head-to-head on the issue in the video below.

Irish folks can't really feel superior or ridicule Donald Trump for the anchor babies ban that he is seeking.

Ireland voted to end birthright citizenship in 2004. Prior to this, it was the last country in the European Union to allow it.

James Perloff "On 9/11, The Flight 11 Crew KNEW They Were Taking Part In a Terror Drill!"

More info from Perloff's web site:

Unraveling the Mysteries of Flight 11

False flags are often planned to coincide with drills. This occurred with the Boston Marathon bombing (which happened during a bomb drill) and the recent Charleston massacre (which coincided with a DHS “active shooter threat” drill). The reason for coordinating false flags with drills is that if anything goes wrong, and the false flag cannot be carried out, the authorities can attribute any strange events the public witnessed to “a drill.”

Our thesis will be: Ong and Sweeney (Flt 11 flight attendants) believed they were participating in a hijacking drill. Those familiar with 9/11’s backstory know that NORAD and the Air Force were engaged in military exercises that day, including simulated hijackings. Information about this can be found abundantly on the Internet.
